My name is Alexis and I am an experienced Spanish teacher living in Simcoe County. Born in Lima, Peru, I enjoy sharing Spanish culture with my students in a fun, no-pressure kind of way. I have taught Spanish to adults and children for the public school board and privately. Whether you want to learn Spanish at the university level or would like to be able to order a drink the next time you travel, we can design a learning plan that suits you. I look forward to working with you!
Look at what my students have said throughout the years
"I have been taking Spanish lessons with Alexis for over a year now
and I could not ask for a better teacher! He has structured the lessons
to meet my individual needs - first to prepare me for my trip to Peru, then
to help me improve my listening and speaking skills, and now Spanish
proficiency will be an advantage to me at my workplace. Alexis is very patient
and encouraging. His lessons are engaging, practical, informative and fun!
Muchas gracias, Alexis!"

"Alexis, my two friends and I look forward to our Spanish class every week. Your comfortable, small group setting provides an optimal environment for us to have fun and learn.
Your easy manner and sense of humour quickly puts us at ease and allows us to take risks speaking Spanish.
You are always prepared and flexible in designing interesting lessons to meet our needs and interests.
Alexis, I really appreciate that classes with you provide more than just a study of the Spanish language. We have an opportunity to learn about the life and culture of Peruvian people from a native speaker.
Thank you! With your help, I am feeling more confident in my ability to converse in Spanish. I look forward to many more classes."

"Alexis is an excellent teacher. He is patient and makes sure that we have learned the correct grammar and pronunciation. After four years of French at my grammar school, I was still unable to have a conversation in French. After several months of Spanish lessons, I can't wait to travel to a Spanish speaking country and immerse myself in the language and culture."
Margaret Macauley, Midland, Ontario
"Alexis has been a wonderfully patient teacher of Spanish to me. I knew no Spanish other than ‘por favor’ before taking lessons with Alexis and now...I know more! Not because I’ve studied long and hard but because of my teacher’s willingness to take me as I am – unstudied and lacking in memory. We plug along with lots of good humour and ease. I always look forward to my lessons, and to the day when I can visit a Spanish-speaking country with confidence that I have some vocabulary and phrases at the ready.
Thank you, Alexis, for giving me your time and bearing with me as I struggle to learn your beautiful language."
Helen Gay, retired teacher, Barrie, Ontario
Thank you for instilling in me an appreciation for other cultures and for being such a great teacher. I hope you continue to impact children in the same way you impacted me"
Pearce, Barrie, (8th grade)
"My wife and I find ourselves spending considerable time in Spanish speaking countries including Cuba, Peru, Argentina and Chile and as a result, we wanted to learn Spanish. Fortunately, we were able to receive instruction from Alexis. He has worked closely with us to understand our needs, identify our learning patterns and to give us insights into the Spanish speaking Americas. He has tailored the program to address areas that would have maximum impact for us.
Alexis excels at teaching and developing an understanding of Spanish by a structured approach including grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation which is enhanced with practical conversations that are engaging and fun. Having just returned from three weeks in Cuba we are pleased with our progress under Alexis’ guiding hand to improve our language skills and look forward to continuing our lessons.
Gracias a nuestro maestro!"
